Want a fancy charging dock for your LG G Watch? Aerios Moduul could be it.

There’s no doubt that the first generation LG G Watch is a functional device first, and aesthetically pleasing maybe fifth or sixth; it isn’t the most glamorous watch. The same can be said of the charging dock; it’s a black little plastic brick, and it’s rather unappealing. It doesn’t look great on the nightstand, and on the desk, it just looks a bit out of place. Enter Sydney design firm Aerios. Launched by the guys behind Gadgets 4 Geeks, Aerios has announced the Moduul range, with its first piece an upgrade to the dock for your LG G Watch. As[Read More...]

LG teases G Watch R for IFA; shows it off and makes a sly dig at the Moto 360

LG teases G Watch R for IFA; shows it off and makes a sly dig at the Moto 360

LG is continuing to tease its upcoming round smartwatch, rumoured to be awkwardly named the G Watch R, with this recent post on the company’s Google+ page teasing a reveal at IFA in early September. LG’s taken a cheeky swipe at Motorola‘s Moto 360 in their post too, claiming that the G Watch R will be the first wearable to “fully utilize its circular shape”. If true (and if LG can deliver on other fronts), that missing chunk at the bottom of the Moto 360’s screen could well prove to be its achilles heel. Commenters are pointing out the fairly[Read More...]

Good Deal: Grab an LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition for $245 delivered from Expansys

LG announces the G3 UX to become standard on low-mid range smartphones and tablets

LG is quite proud of their latest iteration of the UX for their G3, it’s a matured skin which has really come a long way from their quite outlandish initial offerings.

There’s a lot to like about the UX on the G3, and LG has been moving features from their high-end G series phones to lower end models since the Optimus G.

New stylus toting LG G3 model, unsurprisingly called the G3 Stylus shown off in new video from LG

The LG G3 has only just rolled into stores in Australia, but that seems to be just the start, the G3 Beat was recently announced with decidedly lower end specs, and now a new model has appeared in a product video for the G3 Beat on the LG Mobile Global YouTube page. Like the G3 Beat, the G3 Stylus may be a lower end offering designed to perhaps replace the LG Optimus Vu, their other stylus driven mobile offering. The LG G3 Stylus is shown off with the stulus tucked into the phone at the top on the right hand-side,[Read More...]
